Abstract : The report covers the effect of jet fuels on service properties of modern jet aircraft engines. Reasons for poor engine performance due to fuel are given and problems discussed on improvement of technical characteristics of engines and aircraft and extension of service life by using new and improved high quality fuels. A new method for improving jet fuel purity by coagulant additives is given. A reliable means of improving operation of fuel regulating devices is mentioned and an effective means for decreasing wear of plunger type fuel pumps and regulators by use of antiwear additives is given. Antifreeze additives which prevent fuel filter obstruction at high altitudes is discussed. Relationship of engine operation to fractional composition and volatility of fuels is described. (Author)
